Holiday Party

Don’t forget the Holiday party is going to be on the 4th of December at 6:00pm in the Prejean Hall of Corpus Christi Church. Come one come all!! As usual the civic club will furnish the meat and drinks and all utensils.
Bring a covered dish to share with every one if you can. This is also a general meeting of the civic club. Of course the meeting will be short. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Mosguito Control

We put a dose of larvicide in the storm drains this afternoon. Every one needs to check around their house and get rid of any standing water.
Thanks to Bob and Sandy for the help with the larvicide.

City Department of Neighborhoods is in Westwood

An inspector from the Department of Neighborhoods has been going up and down our streets looking for violations of city ordinances such as storing your garbage can and recycle can in view from the street.
Please be aware that residents cannot store the green recycle can or the brown garbage can where anyone can see it as they pass by.

2-Garbage_Collection_0623_2014Here are the riles on solid waste collection from the City of Houston. Let’s all try to follow them. It is up to HPD to enforce them since they are city ordainces, so I am sure they can issue tickets for infractions.

Big Green Recycle Cans

Yes it is true!! We are scheduled to get the COH big green recycle cans in June. This was confirmed by city councilman Larry Greens office this week. It’s been a long wait but it is finally here.

Well they are already here!! Amazing.

The first scheduled pick up is June 26th. That is our regular recycle date.

Remember, trash cans should not be visible from the street according to COH code.

Bellfort Park Apartments

A company has contacted us for an endorsement of their project to demolish the Bellfort Park Apartments and rebuild new ones. They would still be affordable housing but it would be gated, new construction with strict requirements for the renters. The civic Club board can see nothing but positive result for the neighborhood. That being said, we are in the process of endorsing this project. I will keep everyone informed.

Black Trash Bags

City of Houston Solid Waste will not pick up your yard waste that is contained in large black plastic bags. The rules say that tree and yard waste must be in city approved recyclable plastic bags. I know these bags are not very good as far as holding anything but those are the rules. If you have or your neighbors have yard waste at the curb in black plastic bags, please move them and get the material in the proper bags.
Thanks
